If James Bond Designed a Bathroom, It Just Might Look like This

We’ve long been in awe of Brizo’s ability to bring a sense of history to the bathroom (and kitchen!). Their latest collection, Levoir™, is no exception. The team wanted to capture the perfect contours and elegance inspired by classic British automobile design. (Think James Bond sliding into a 1960s ‘MGB’) And like James Bond moving between the French Riviera to the streets of Istanbul, the resulting collection fits right into any style from ultra contemporary to transitional.

The collection is grounded in the sleek style and architecture of the 1960s. Brizo paired those classic mid-century rounded shapes and slender forms with ultra modern bath features like H2Okinetic® Technology, which provides the ultimate luxurious shower experience by controlling water’s shape, velocity and thermal dynamics. (James Bond could get behind that!) The collection includes a full suite of products, including faucets, tub fillers, handshowers, valves, showerheads, body sprays and accessories.

Design in the details: note the wow-factor black crystal on the faucet handles.

Like all Brizo collections nailing the aesthetics was critical. “This collection feels at home in the modern world, yet it carries a sense of history,” said Celine Garland, Brizo products lead industrial designer. “I selected each component to convey timeless sophistication. Finishing details like the Black Crystal on the lever handles add a sense of je ne sais quoi, the little extra touch that distinguishes true luxury.”

The collection features Brizo’s new Brilliance® Luxe Steel™ finish. The Luxe Steel finish was developed to balance the tailored elegance of the collection. Its cool tones bring to life the interplay of shadow and light against each faceted surface. To further play up the interplay of the faceted silhouette and the finish, designers created a cross handle option. Garland explained, “From the curves of the chamfered edges to the intersecting planes of the cross handles, the lines form a simple, yet elegant silhouette.”

There are limitless lavatory configurations and a vast array of widespread spout and handle options. You can pair a high or low spout with high or low lever or cross handles on the widespread lavatory faucet. The focus on simple, yet elegant silhouettes creates a streamlined harmony and unparalleled luxury customizable for any space. It’s daring, distinguished and debonair. James Bond would certainly approve.

So whether you’re searching for bathroom fixtures for your beach cottage, city pied-à-terre or mountain cabin, we think the hunt just might be over.
